Social Services    

Families and individuals in our community go without proper food, shelter, and essential medical care every day due to a variety of factors including low wages, job loss, injuries, illness, age, domestic violence, or divorce. It is our mission to help the residents in South Brunswick deal with these situations and circumstances to the best of our abilities. Crisis intervention provides immediate assistance for those in need. The Food Pantry, assistance with utility bills, rent and food certificates are some of the services we provide. An application is completed for each recipient and is updated during the year. All funds and food are provided from donations.

Important Update

South Brunswick Social Services in cooperation with South Brunswick Office of Emergency Management are keeping the food pantry up and running.  The demand for the Food Pantry has grown tremendously and any assistance will be appreciated. 

Effective Tuesday, April 21st, residents in need will be able to preregister and pick up food twice a week at the Municipal Building. Here are the new procedures to allow more people in need to access the South Brunswick Food Pantry.

Food Pantry Drive Thru Days - Tuesdays & Thursdays 10am to 12pm.

• Register to receive food by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
• After you register you will receive a confirmation number which you will show on the day of your pickup.
• On your pickup day you will pull around to the rear of the building and pull up to the drive thru. Upon arriving you will show one of the employees the confirmation number from your phone or you can write it on a piece of paper and hold it up to the window.
• An employee will place the boxes in your trunk after verifying your confirmation number. Food will not be distributed without a confirmation number. Food can only be placed in the trunk.
• Please remain in your vehicle and keep your windows rolled up at all times.
• This program is for South Brunswick residents only.
• Please note we are unable to accept donations at the drive thru.

This new procedure will allow us to provide assistance while maintaining social distancing.
